Thrive Podcast

Getting a cancer diagnosis isn’t a death sentence. Garth and Dara are here to teach you everything you need to move forward with your life, whatever challenges you’re facing.

Episode 23 - The Spoon Theory & Why It Matters

WGarth Callaghan

In this episode, Garth and Dara discuss The Spoon Theory, a theory which acknowledges we each have a certain amount of energy to spend every day. 

What do you do when your responsibilities and commitments take up too many spoons? How do you make sure you budget your energy for actives that bring you joy and happiness. What happens when you run out of energy? How do you recharge your batteries?

Time management, the need to identify your priorities and the importance of intentional living are all discussed in this episode. As always, Garth and Dara give listeners tips to help make the most of their lives.

Episode 22 - Fine Tune Your Relationships

WGarth Callaghan

It’s the relationships we have with the people in our lives that mean so much to us. But, what happens when we feel like we’re being used? What about a one sided friendship? How do we grow our relationships, decrease the drama in our lives and even have the courage to walk away when a friendship doesn’t feel right anymore. 


In this episode, Garth and Dara talk about what’s important to them in a relationship, encourage you to take a good look at the people you’re spending time with, and even recommended spending a little time alone. The people we spend time with directly impact us, and you deserve to be around people who make you feel good about yourself.

Episode 19 - We Were Wrong

WGarth Callaghan

Have you ever been so sure of something? I mean really sure? 

This was us, before we took our daughters to college. 

You might have caught our podcast about transitions, and about how we mentioned we were taking our daughters to college. 

We talked about how SURE we were that we weren’t going to be sad. Because we are grateful and happy and all of that good stuff.


Guess what? 


We were so wrong. 

And, when we’re wrong about something on the THRIVE podcast, we admit it!


Check out this episode and listen to us swallow some serious humble pie! We share our experience, what it feels like to be so sad your heart hurts, and what to do about it.
